Hi Brian,
Covera is one of the brand names of the generic Verapamil. It is a calcium cannel blocker. As such it has beneficial effects on damaged heart muscles, and the blood pressure decreasing effect is secondary. However, reducing the Ca concentration in other cell may be beneficial for other diseases, by example CH. Therefore,

Verapamil is the preventative of first choice for CH

See the "ask doc greg" at the left side if the message board.
Everybody that has not tried it yet should try Verapamil as preventative. Note: many docs prescribe a rather low dosage, about what is usual for heart patients. However, in 38'000 messages on this board, there are only a few who report success at a doses of less than 360 mg/day.
So if you haven't done yet, try it!!!
